Eu Sou Novo Aqui

Eu sou novo aqui
Eu nao entendi
The first two sentences I learned in this country
And I slowly understood Brazil was an allegory
Of the world I wanted to see

Eu sou novo aqui
Eu nao entendi
I am new here
I don’t understand
So I can do whatever I want
I cut the sacred queue at the bar
I skate wherever I want
And since I can do whatever I want
Today, I am the master of your breath, I am the maestro of your voice
Stand up for me
Breathe with me
1-2 / 1-2
And now instead of breathing out I want you to do "Ohm"
1-2
Did you feel it? Our souls singing the same song

We live in the most amazing world possible and we somehow keep forgetting it
A 17 year old invented a glue to heal wounds
A student found a way to make your phone detect cancer
A Brazilian neuroscientist invented a mental whats-app
When was the last time you sat down and looked out the window?
We are running in a race against people we don’t know
To win a prize we’re not sure we want
Here is the story of a rich entrepreneur who works all day every day
One good day he decides to take a week of vacation on an island
Crazy
He meets a fisherman and gets close
He inquires about what he does
And asks him why he doesn’t expand his activity
“Why?” asks the fisherman
“Well, you’d make more money, hire boats and get more fish” says the entrepreneur
“Then what?”
"Then you can make even more money and you wouldn’t have to work"
"Then what?"
"Then you’d be able … to come fish on an island"

Tomorrow's entrepreneurs are monks, philosophers, poets and psychologists
We thought we needed technology for our calls
Truth is we needed technology for our souls
Why should we care?
A Brazilian girl is giving voice to Rio
An Argentinian girl is democratising democracy
An Israeli is exposing corruption
Why should we care?
Let me run you through Moore’s law of the heart
Just like we can fit computers that used to fill a room in a cellphone
We can fit more kindness in our hearts
Your heart can grow to
When you read your mind grows
When you care your heart grows
There is a parallel universe where we can say "I love you" without needing to hear it first, without waiting for the 6th date

I am new here
I don’t understand
There are wars being fought outside
The Amazon is being decimated
People are being made refugees in countries that are not their own
And there are wars happening around you
Bosses, girlfriends, angry friend and siblings
And from these wars, refugees emerge
Anger, Anxiety, Fear, Sadness
All come take refuge inside you
Let them in, let them stay, legalise them
Let them put up a tent and look at them
Give them time
One day, they too will go away
They too will leave this land

Eu sou novo aqui
Eu nao entendi
Just like I found my Brazil
There is a country out there waiting to be found
There is a country out there waiting to be founded
There is a country out there waiting for you
It’s not an e-topia or a utopia
It’s a you and me-topia
There, we’ll sit next to each other looking out the window
And we’ll breathe
Breathe with me

Voces sao novos aqui
Voces nao precisam de entender
We can all re-discover the world
We’re all gringos at the end
